Free Prayers of the Faithful (Mass Petitions)

Intercessions for Use in Mass and Worship

The prayers of the faithful are an important part of a Catholic Mass, and they are also used in other liturgies and forms of Christian worship. In them, the Church publicly and collectively prays for the needs of the Church, community, and members of the body of Christ. They are also called petitions or intercessions.

These free prayers of the faithful are for use in parishes and schools, for Masses and other worship services. You are free to alter and edit these for personal or parish use to meet your particular needs. We do request that if someone asks, you tell them you got them from us so others might also use them freely. They are grouped by season or holiday alphabetically.
